Edvard Hagerup Grieg
The Mercury Orchestra evokes the choral traditions of Northern Europe in a program including Rimsky-Korsakov’s brilliant orchestration of Russian Orthodox liturgical themes in his Russian Easter Overture, Edvard Grieg’s deft weaving of Norwegian folk themes into his Piano Concerto, and Jean Sibelius’s triumphant storytelling in his Second Symphony—his self-proclaimed “confession of the soul.” This performance features pianist Raymond Feng, winner
of the 2016 Foundation for Chinese Performing Arts Concerto Competition.
